Heriot’s have swooped to add British & Irish Cup coach Jonny Else to their panel for next season.
Else parted company with Edinburgh Accies days before they were forced to preserve their Premiership place in a play-off at the end of a season in which they also tackled the likes of London Welsh.
A statement says: “Heriot’s are delighted to announce their new 2nd XV coaching team with Jonny Else as Head Coach, Malcolm Welch as forwards coach and Michael Goldie assistant backs coach.”
• Ex-World Player of the Year Bryan Habana and Saracens hooker Shalk Britz are included in South Africa’s squad in a major boost for the Commonwealth Games sevens in Glasgow.
• Edinburgh second row Grant Gilchrist gains a sixth cap tomorrow after being called into Scotland’s team to face Canada in Toronto. Also back are Kelly Brown, Peter Horne and Moray Low, with a likely debut from off the bench for Kevin Bryce, who spent much of last season at Heriot’s.
